Publisher's Summary

The next-to-last novel in Stephen King's seven-volume magnum opus, Song of Susannah is a fascinating key to the unfolding mystery of the Dark Tower.

To give birth to her "chap", demon-mother Mia has usurped the body of Susannah Dean and used the power of Black Thirteen to transport to New York City in the summer of 1999. The city is strange to Susannah...and terrifying to the "daughter of none" who shares her body and mind.

Saving the Tower depends not only on rescuing Susannah but also on securing the vacant lot Calvin Tower owns before he loses it to the Sombra Corporation. Enlisting the aid of Manni senders, the remaining ka-tet climbs to the Doorway Cave...and discovers that magic has its own mind. It falls to the boy, the billy bumbler, and the fallen priest to find Susannah-Mia, who in a struggle to cope, with each other and with an alien environment, "go todash" to Castle Discordia on the border of End-World. In that forsaken place, Mia reveals her origins, her purpose, and her fierce desire to mother whatever creature the two of them have carried to term.

Eddie and Roland, meanwhile, tumble into western Maine in the summer of 1977, a world that should be idyllic but isn't. For one thing, it is real, and the bullets are flying. For another, it is inhabited by the author of a novel called Salem's Lot, a writer who turns out to be as shocked by them as they are by him.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever heard. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. Don't miss the other volumes of Stephen King's The Dark Tower.

What the Critics Say

"There's something about a crippled, black, schizophrenic, civil rights activist-turned-gunslinger whose body has been hijacked by a white, pregnant demon from a parallel world that keeps a seven-volume story bracingly strong as it veers toward its Armageddon-like conclusion....The biggest cliffhanger of King's career." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Did other reviewers even LISTEN to this book???"

    After listening to this through twice, I'm really happy I did. It gave a great insight into the Susannah/Mia plotline but also brought the author into the story. If you take what he says in the "diary" into account, I think the next book is going to be very interesting...

    But I have to ask, did any of the negative reviewers even LISTEN to the whole story?? Didn't you get any of it? It doesn't appear so, given some of the questions being asked here. Did you really think that was King's actually diary? Heh? Uh, did you notice what the very last section was about?? The dates? Hello?

    Anyway, can't wait for the last book...

    Story
    "Well written addition to the Dark Tower series"

    Mia is the character you love to hate. Felt like it dragged in some parts, but all of Mia's backstory was relevant. Pleasantly surprised to get the "why" in the prophesy as well.

    It was incredible to see Stephen King making an appearance in this story. He was insinuated into the story in a way that was believable and entertaining, not cheesy. His creativity knows no bounds.

    I gotta say, I can't wait to see how Stephen King will remedy that ending!!

    Love the Dark Tower series!!

    "Love the whole Dark Tower Series."

    Love the whole Dark Tower Series. This is my second time listening after reading the series years ago. I'm a big fan of both formats, but I think the audio book is slightly superior.

    "Amazing read"

    Absolutely amazing, easily one of the best books that I've ever read, though the pacing is rather different than the other dark tower books.

    "Standing "O" from my car"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great depth and density.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes this audiobook. The only comparable reader I've heard on an audiobook was the gent who did the last couple Harry Potter Books on tape.

    Story
    "A Half-story, But Still Good"

    Unluck the last book, there is no episodic sense of a complete story arc. However, the overall series story continues at a steady pace, with a hell of a cliffhanger.
